WEC Energy upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BofA/Merrill
BofA/Merrill analyst Julien Dumoulin-Smith upgraded WEC Energy and trimmed its price target to $65 from $67 ahead of a capex acceleration into the EEI conference this fall and a potential delay in its next Wisconsin rate case. The analyst said WEC is increasing its gas capex mix, which should add to incremental opportunities, driven by FoxConn facility, wind, and solar & electric distribution capex.

DOWNGRADE

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Seagate (STX) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Goldman Sachs by analyst Mark Delaney, who said that while Seagate has improved its product offerings in the last few years, hard disk drives remain a cyclical industry, and one "facing secular challenges in many parts of the market." 2. 21st Century Fox (FOXA) downgraded to Sector Perform from Outperform at RBC Capital by analyst Steven Cahall who noted that the stock is now trading near its M&A price and that he does not see any competitive bids emerging. 3. e.l.f. Beauty (ELF) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Jefferies by analyst Stephanie Wissink, who said she is disappointed with the company's "sales fall off," which she says "seems more systemic than previously assumed." e.l.f.'s profit advancement will reverse in the second half of the year amid stepped up brand investment. Shares were also downgraded to Underweight from Neutral at Piper Jaffray, who said she sees a "growing risk of shelf-space cuts into 2019" if underlying sales trends do not improve, at Citi to Neutral from Buy and at DA Davidson to Neutral from Buy. 4. Southern Company (SO) downgraded to Underperform from In Line at Evercore ISI by analyst Greg Gordon, who said he believes the shares are still not discounting enough risk after the company announced a $790M after-tax charge related to an increase in the cost estimate for constructing Vogtle Nuclear Plants 3 and 4. Shares were also downgraded to Underperform from Neutral at Credit Suisse, to Equal Weight from Overweight at Barclays and to Neutral from Buy at Guggenheim. 5. Schneider National (SNDR) downgraded to Underperform from Buy at BofA/Merrill by analyst Ken Hoexter, who cited "stretched" relative valuation. The analyst also downgraded Genesee & Wyoming (GWR) to Neutral from Buy, saying recent strength in shares has led to a premium multiple and sees minimal upside.

Fly Intel: Today's top analyst calls on Wall Street
Check out today's top analyst calls from around Wall Street, compiled by The Fly. GOLDMAN CUTS SEAGATE TO SELL: Goldman Sachs analyst Mark Delaney downgraded Seagate Technology (STX) to Sell from Neutral and lowered his price target for the shares to $44 from $50, representing 20% downside from current levels. While Seagate has improved its product offerings in the last few years, hard disk drives remain a cyclical industry, and one "facing secular challenges in many parts of the market," Delaney said. He believes Seagate's fundamentals will peak in the second half of 2018 and decline in 2019. RBC CUTS FOX TO SECTOR PERFORM ON VALUATION: RBC Capital analyst Steven Cahall downgraded 21st Century Fox (FOXA) to Sector Perform from Outperform, but raised his price target to $49 from $45. The analyst noted that the stock is now trading near its M&A price and that he does not see any competitive bids emerging. Cahall adds that while the company is "undervalued", he awaits the separation to re-evaluate his stance. MORGAN STANLEY DOWNGRADES SEMI INDUSTRY: Morgan Stanley analyst Joseph Moore said he has become less constructive on semiconductor stocks through the year and he now believes elevated inventory levels and stretched lead times leave "no margin for error." Given his view that any lead time adjustment or demand slowdown could drive a "meaningful correction," Moore has downgraded his semiconductor industry view to Cautious from In-Line. He favors connector companies, like Amphenol (APH) and TE Connectivity (TEL) over analog/MCU at this point in the cycle, due to lower risk around lead time issues, Moore said. He also has a "strong preference" for high margin and more defensive models, such as Analog Devices (ADI) over lower margin and commodity exposed ones, like Cypress Semiconductor (CY) and ON Semiconductor (ON), he said. Despite his more cautious view on the space, Moore kept Overweight ratings on Nvidia (NVDA), Xilinx (XLNX) and Ambarella (AMBA), citing his view that they should benefit from secular growth in the area of AI, data center, and autonomous. SOUTHERN COMPANY GETS MULTIPLE DOWNGRADES AFTER Q2 REPORT: Barclays analyst Eric Beaumont downgraded Southern Company (SO) to Equal Weight and lowered his price target for the shares to $48 from $51. Credit Suisse analyst Michael Weinstein downgraded Southern Company to Underperform from Neutral and lowered his price target on the shares to $43 from $46. Guggenheim analyst Shahriar Pourreza downgraded Southern Company to Neutral from Buy and lowered his price target on the stock to $47 from $50. Evercore ISI analyst Greg Gordon downgraded Southern Company to Underperform from In Line and lowered his price target on Southern shares to $46 from $46.75.

Southern Company shareholders exposed to overruns after vote, says Mizuho
Mizuho analyst Paul Fremont keeps a Neutral rating on Southern Company after three of four Vogtle co-owners voted to move forward with construction under an amended agreement. He believes the agreement creates potential shareholder exposure if there are cost overruns above $2.1B in the future and lowered his price target for the shares to $42.
